Katja Strunz

The Berlin based artist Katja Strunz I thought would be interesting to look at. She had a solo show at the Camden Arts Centre about a year ago called ‘Sound of the Pregeometric Age’. Strunz works with the aftermath or resonance of history, unfolding in space and time. I liked her sculpture/installations a lot, especially as I am interested in combining my print work with some form of geometric form to act an equivalent to my print work. I also work with steel but so far I am only making prints from the metal! It is the reference to time or the idea of an aftermath of an event that interests me. Her ‘Oddball orchestra’ I find really funny to look at, the assembled instruments and objects taking on personalities once abandoned by their owners.
